Banyen Books & Sound
3608 West 4th Ave.


Doña María Apaza, the last living Priestess of the Q'ero Peoples of Peru, will offer a Flower Blessing at Banyen. The ceremony is a cleansing realized with a blessing of water and flowers that have been consecrated with prayers. It serves to remove obstacles so that all that is positive in our lives may flourish. These sessions can be very sweet and purifying, returning a sense of prosperity and the freshness of youth and spring to our lives. A true blessing to be in her presence, we welcome you to this special event.

V.M. Doña María Apaza is an Alto Misayoc which means “She who welcomes the Major Spirits, the most important and powerful”, and is the highest degree of Andean Priestess. She is the last Inca Priestess with this degree and comes from Hatun Quigo, Q’ero Nation of Cusco, Peru.

Initiated in the Ancestral Andean Wisdom, she will visit our country in order to share her knowledge and remind us that within our hearts there exists the capacity to communicate with the Pachamama, our Inner Mother, the Eternal Feminine, and with the Great Father, that dwells in our interior.

She will be accompanied by Maco Peña García, an initiated Priestess in the Andean tradition of the Q’ero community. Maco is also the coordinator of Inkarri in Peru and a certified facilitator of the Pneuma System. She is supporting with the translation from the Quechua language.
